Have you ever gotten so cold you ached? What did you do to warm up??

Today I was out in snow in my dress shoes do to an automobile situation. My feet were freezing by the time I got home so bad that they hurt. I immediately changed and put on slippers and sat under a blanket until I warmed up.

  • When I get cold to the bone I turn my mattress cover on high, crawl in and thaw out.

  • YES!! I took a hot shower. Warms you up instantly. Wait about 15 minutes if coming in from outside to take the chill out and then shower or bath. Then I jump under my comfy blanket.

  • Im a letter carrier and boy do I know about getting chilled to the bone! Its horrible being out in a storm for hours on end and being totally soaked. It gives me the momentum to get done that much faster so I can get home and changed and warm

  • Hon, I winter time even with knot snowing just cold. My hubby says I have warm heart & hands but AC feet. LOL Mine bad circulation. So, I go into bathroom run some warm/hot water in tub just enough for my feet. I put feet in it until warm gets cool. Then sometimes add more hot.

    What is does is adds heat to your feet and pushes the cold out of your feet. Heat in cold out type thing. Then dry them off and put socks on then slippers. They stay warm and comfy from then on. Works great. I know rest of your bodies cold but start with the feet first. then you warm up quicker. The heat goes through your blood stream quicker standing in warm/hot water then trying to water up with blankets and heating pads. Try it and see.

  • I actually have a medical problem where I get too cool too fast. So, just getting frozen food out of the freezer will send sharp shooting pains up my arms and I won't be able to open my hands much. I have to put my hands under hot water to stop the pain. Even my doctor said that it's a good thing that I live in the south.

  • When I get that cold, I add 2-3 extra blankets to my bed and microwave my heat pack. It has a mud polymer that stays warm for hours, and once it's hot I tuck that where I'll lie down. Then I take a hot shower, not getting my hair wet. I put on my warmest pajamas and socks, then jump into the bed where the heat pack is and curl up with that against my stomach and the covers up to my chin.
